Broccoli Cheddar Latkes

Potato latkes are as exciting as vanilla ice cream. I’m sure there are the purists who believe it’s best to stick with tradition, but I like to mix things up in the kitchen. This year, I’m giving the latke a serious makeover, starting with this recipe for broccoli Cheddar latkes!

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound broccoli florets, chopped and steamed
  • 1 russet potato, peeled and grated
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/2 Cup panko crumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 Cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 Cup canola oil, plus extra for frying

Directions

Place the broccoli florets in large mixing bowl. Add the grated potato, diced onion, panko crumbs, pepper, salt, cayenne, flour, cheese, and oil and mix well. Shape into patties. Heat about 1 inch of the canola oil to 375 degrees. Fry the latkes in the oil until golden brown, about 5 minutes.  

Broccoli Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Broccoli Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
